Dry Herb Vaporizer Conduction or Convection – The Leaf Online

In 2020, dry herb vaporizers are set to be bigger than ever. In the UK, weed vaporizer shops now literally stock hundreds of models. Each of these devices has its own methods of vaping and various options. This can make choosing the right device quite tricky.

One of the biggest divides in the cannabis vaping community is whether conduction or convection is the superior method of vaporizing cannabis in a dry herb vaporizer.

In an attempt to bring this intense debate to the end we look at the pros and cons of both conduction and convection vaporizers below.

What are conduction vaporizers?

Conduction means to heat by touch and this is exactly how conduction vapes work; the battery works to bring the heating element to a high temperature. Then your herbs are placed in direct contact with the heating element inside your vaporizer, producing vapour very quickly.

Because the technology is quite rudimentary, by nature, conduction vaporizers are usually lower cost than convection. Despite this, conduction is still the heating method of choice is several of the flagship devices of the world’s most popular vaping brands including DaVinci and Pax.

What are the advantages of conduction vaporizers?

  • Conduction ovens are typically very powerful and produce vapour well under a minute. Some of the more better-known conduction vapes, for example, the Dynavap and Pax 3 are famous for being able to vape cannabis in under 20 seconds!
  • The speed of conduction vaporizers makes them a popular choice of medical users or anyone who microdoses. Sessions can be very quick. For example, you can micro-dose with a Dynavap in less than 20 seconds
  • Conduction vaporizers are also more affordable. This is because the technology is simpler than convection heaters and they require fewer parts to build

What are the disadvantages of conduction vaporizers?

  • Because they heat by direct touch, quite often the herbs closest to the heating element can burn which is something we want to avoid!
  • Conduction vaporizers can be inefficient. The cannabis closest to the heat will vaporizer more effectively than those furthest away.

What are convection vaporizers?

Convection heating is the newer technology and as such, some of the best models can cost upwards of £200! They heat your cannabis by creating an atmosphere of hot air inside your herb vaporizer’s oven. In turn, this hot air vaporizers your weed.

This can be more efficient because air will reach all parts of your oven ensuring that your entire bud is evenly heated. On the downside, it can take some time for the small vaporizer batteries to create a hot atmosphere of air.

What are the advantages of convection vaporizers?

  • Convection ovens are great because they all but guarantee no burned cannabis! This is thanks to the fact that your cannabis never comes in contact with the heating element. Instead, it is heated by air.
  • Because convection vapes are more efficient, your herbs will be more potent and last a lot longer
  • Convection vaporizers produce better tasting vapour better this is because the herbs all cook evenly and nothing is burned.

What are the disadvantages of convection vaporizers?

  • Convection vaporizers can take some time to heat up. Even the priciest devices such as Storz & Bickel’s Mighty take nearly a full minute to reach a suitable vaping temperature.
  • Finally, convection vaporizers weed can be difficult to use. For example, if you inhale too hard you’ll pull all the hot air out of the oven. This reduces the temperature of your vape and means the weed may not actually vaporize.
